TEXAS DESIGN WEEK HOUSTON I t's a daunting task to edit down the 400 most impactful rooms in a century of interior design. William Norwich, the New York-based interior d e s i g n a n d f a s h i o n e d i t o r formerly of Vogue and The New York Times, reached deep into the archives of his vast industry experience and tapped the full force of the editors of Phaidon to compile Interiors: The Greatest Rooms of the Century. The painstakingly researched compilation includes photography and descriptions of the homes of fashion designers Coco Chanel, Yv e s S a i n t L a u r e n t , a n d Christian Dior; artists Salvador Dalí, Georgia O'Keeffe, Cy Twombly, and Pablo Picasso; r o o m s c o m m i s s i o n e d b y Jacqueline Kennedy, Gloria Vanderbilt, and Madonna; works by interior design greats Billy Baldwin, Colefax & Fowler, and Elsie de Wolfe; and 87 more design triumphs. It's an invaluable resource — not to mention a feast for the eyes. Norwich delivers an illustrated talk followed by a book signing at Texas Design Week Houston.
